Optimizing Digital Organic Freeform Modelling for Fabrication by Using Parameterization With Glass Fibre Reinforced Plastics (GRP): A Case Study

  title={Optimizing Digital Organic Freeform Modelling for Fabrication by Using Parameterization With Glass Fibre Reinforced Plastics (GRP): A Case Study},
  author={J. Fischer},
In the fabrication of organic free-form shapes in architecture one is constantly faced with specifi c planning and design challenges. This paper examines these problems as well as possible solutions for the design of a completed and built prototype using the example of an organically shaped pavilion made of glass fi bre reinforced plastic modules. The paper describes which adjustments to the original design were required to take the step from “digital physicality” to “physical digitality” to… Expand
Integrated design methods for the simulation of fibre-based structures
The production of structural components based on fibre-reinforced polymers (FRP) for the building industry is still characterised by a classic downstream development process from design throughExpand
Fibrous Morphologies: Integrative design and fabrication of fibre-reinforced structures in architecture using robotic filament winding
Living organisms have evolved effective structural solutions in response to the inherent constraints of their respective environments through a process of morphological adaptation. Given the factExpand
Core-Less Filament Winding
The research presented in this chapter describes novel strategies towards robotic fabrication of geometrically complex fiber reinforced building elements. The research focuses on “core-less” filamentExpand
Grid shell structures are widely used in many types of buildings. In this paper the author proposes a new grid shell structure, which is pre-tensioned by stretchable membrane. Through iterativeExpand


Case Studies in Cost-Optimized Paneling of Architectural Freeform Surfaces
This work extends this paneling algorithm to facilitate effective design exploration, in particular for local control of tolerance margins and the handling of sharp crease lines, and evaluates the performance of the paneling algorithms with a number of case studies. Expand
Tiling Freeform Shapes With Straight Panels: Algorithmic Methods
Based on recent results obtained in the geometry processing community, algorithmically approach the questions of an exact rectangular shape of panels; of watertightness of the resulting paneling; and of the panel shapes being achievable by pure bending. Expand
Circular arc structures
The most important guiding principle in computational methods for freeform architecture is the balance between cost efficiency on the one hand, and adherence to the design intent on the other. KeyExpand
T-Splines : A Technology for Marine Design with Minimal Control Points
Methods for designing hulls using T-splines, a relatively new surface representation that eliminates the superfluous rows and columns of control points that are unavoidable in NURBS are presented. Expand
